Children and Families

We warmly welcome children and families to visit AGWA and explore all the exhibitions, collections and interactive experiences together.

Gallery 09 hosts a year round artist-led participatory exhibition series that invites families to interact and engage. See more about Gallery 09.

Forecast is a place for feeling, inviting audiences of all ages and abilities to contribute to the exhibition through contemplating trees as family, and weather as borderless. Equal part exhibition, artist studio, retreat, and creative weather station, audiences are invited to contribute to Disappearing Forests by painting evaporating treescapes with water and Weather Patterns, a daily changing installation that reflects currents, atmospheres and connections. These meditative interactions make room for deep listening, attention and care at a time of rising eco-anxiety and climate grief.

Galley 09 is dedicated to interactive, all ages, artist-led projects and hosts a year round participatory exhibition series that invites families to collaborate, contribute and engage with artist practice.
